The Visual Advanced Production Scheduler (VAPS) is an extension designed for manufacturers requiring more advanced scheduling capabilities than offered by standard Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. The VAPS is made for Business Central (v14, cu1 minimum) only.
In addition to the functionalities included in our proven Visual Production Scheduler (VPS), the VAPS offers (among others)
The VAPS is explicitly made for Dynamics 365 Business Central and the Web Client, and requires Business Central V14 (cu1) minimum.
The Visual Advanced Production Scheduler does not just support one version of the schedule. You can create multiple simulations and scenarios, compare them, and then publish the one that fulfills your purpose best.
Move the position of operations by simple mouse actions – horizontally to modify start and end dates or vertically to modify assignments to different work or machine centers. As the VAPS uses finite capacity scheduling, there will be no overbooking of resources. The VAPS comes also with snap functions (snap on other orders and snap on the work free times) to facilitate a precise drop and hence timing of your operations.
Pinned operations won't get moved together with other linked operations. In case of a violation of the link sequence, the pin symbol turns red.
Production orders that have not been scheduled by the VAPS yet, appear as "Standby" in the plan and can easily be included in the VAPS scheduling by drag & drop, or by applying the standard routing (without impacting other orders that were scheduled already).
By defining alternative machine centers (on the "alternate routing set" page) you can specify whether certain operations are to be worked off on alternate machine centers, thus being able to react to machine breakdowns or bottlenecks on certain machine centers.
